I like Southern California, but I adore Northern California. I spent 4 years in Monterey - love the coast up there (and the fact that San Fransisco was only 3 hours away).

I do miss it... (went to Naval Post Graduate School)

If Piaggio had bike give away for some photos you would win hands down everytime . Your love of riding comes through on each and every shot . wow. Mp3 rider . Thanks for sharing the boonies, Dave
Thanks for your kind words Dave. I think the kind of riding I do is too far afield from Piaggio's marketing strategy. It is interesting though to follow the two fellows riding MP3's across country as part of a Piaggio marketing project.

No Age Limit

Now that's a trip I want to make someday!

Went for a ride Thursday night to test out my new Gerbing G3 heated gloves -- free replacements for my old ones that died. You have to love lifetime warranties...

I got to experiment more with the Heidenau Snow Tex tires which are on for the second season. Definitely better than standard tires in snow.

I enjoyed that! Thank you. Some great shots, and great composition!

I really hope this doesn't come across as a shameless plug (for it isn't meant to be), but I recently created a web application where photographers can share their best photo locations - like some of the places you have in your shots - using GPS information.

The idea is that people set the location using simple point-and-click, and other photographers can go in and search for good locations within, say a fifty mile radius of a certain point, and they get GPS coordinates to go visit it themselves.

I would love to see some of your locations on the site!

Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed your shots. Keep up the good work!

Oh, nearly forgot, the site is at: [url]www.gpshots.com[/url]

Right now I am completely out of touch with GPS either as a navigation tool or a way to identify pictures. I keep it turned off on my iPhone. But someday I'll change!

Weather finally warming, or pretending to at least. First sunny day to ride in awhile. Seems like for the past month riding has been a cold, gray affair.

Bravo! Makes me want to get out and take some myself. You obviously live in a very photogenic area and have a really good eye for a shot. You also look like you really enjoy getting out and about on 2 wheels. Do you ever go on rallies, or shoot other scooters? Keep up and enjoy the good work. Gass silver machine gts250

I've been to one scooter rally about four years ago. Rode to the BMW International Rally last summer on the Vespa. That was torture -- 100+ temperatures. Ugh. Time and opportunity keeps me largely to myself in the riding world.

I get to test ride a lot of motorcycles and shoot pictures of them. Whenever I see another Vespa in some interesting setting I'll shoot a picture but again not an often occurrence. My favorite is one I shot last summer with my iPhone while at a conference in Denver of two women on a scooter, one riding side saddle through the city at night.

Thanks for the kind words about the pictures. Glad they help you get out for a ride. I'm always up for a ride. If the wind wasn't blowing so hard tonight I might be tempted to gear up and go!

From snow to mist and rain -- a short ride a couple weeks ago. Always nice to ride when you're not fighting the sun and it makes for more dramatic pictures.

A relaxed ride today despite the threat of rain. In the forest, alone and without traffic, I find myself glad I have a Vespa and at the same time kicking myself for waiting so long to get one. This photo made on one of the meandering roads that runs through the Appalachian Mountains in central Pennsylvania.

Swimming might be out but Kim and I do want to get to England and Scotland someday besides a layover at Shannon or Heathrow. If that happens I expect to make some scooter pictures!

Evening ride on the Vespa -- out exploring the fading sunlight. The GTS has become much more comfortable on gravel over the years. I can remember when 15mph seemed impossible. Now I can cruise at 30-40 on gravel roads without sweating...

Fog this morning and I can't resist a quick photo on the way to work. Not as heavy as some mornings because it was starting to burn off but still a bit of the Brigadoon magic....

Exiting the freeway on the Vespa, a quick photo to admire the setting sun through the concrete. A lot of people are surprised that the scooter can cruise along at acceptable speeds on an expressway. A nice option to have even though I prefer the back roads...

A ride this evening in the mountains near home -- love draining the noise of the week with the Vespa...
